This paper aims at discovering sustainable academic workspace design that can match the technological changes arising from emergent innovation for effectiveness in the contemporary time world of work. More often, innovation becomes disruptive to effectiveness in a short period of time. The objective of the paper illustrates the point that effectiveness of workspace influence space utilisation. Space utilisation and values determination are derivatives of design and sustainable effectiveness. The paper considers current thought in this area and presents a literature review. Emergent work modes from changing technology and innovations in workspace design for universal effectiveness were holistically considered. 5 factors were discovered to be essentially important to the sustainability of workspace design in order to sustain effectiveness of workspace and that of the worker. This implies that design of workspace imperatively need to insert some elements of flexibility; otherwise, the time scale major refit benefits of designs for office of the future may turn around to become hindrances to effectiveness. 109 key variables were generated from literature review as very cognate for academic workspace design.
